Ringo’s Rock Band Drum Kit

Bewm, this is looking to be the Warner Brothers blu ray choice or Wal Mart pulling out of the HDDVD sales market for Rock Band. I mean. Really. Is there any bigger of a franchise than the beatles? Yeah World of Warcrafter’s, y’all aient got nothing on Stadium tours. So we’ve been seeing the other instruments for the Beatles Rock Band game, John’s Ric, Paul’s hofner bass, and George’s gretsch but we’re minus ringo’s famous kit. So. Here is it. I’ll go on record and state that the drums are the easiest parts to play minus say I feel fine. Here’s part of the song list for Beatles rock band.

“Back in the U.S.S.R.”
“Day Tripper”
“Get Back”
“Here Comes the Sun”
“I Am the Walrus”
“I Feel Fine”
“I Saw Her Standing There”
“I Want to Hold Your Hand”
“Octopus’s Garden”

All you need is love will also be an xbox360 exclusive (hur hur) available for download. Additionally the game will include additional DLC, including full albums.With Abbey Road being released for the game shortly after release.

GBU for Lord of the Rings Battle for Middle Earth 2 (PC)

This is a oldie, if you consider 2006 old, but quite a goodie that was released for the PC but also the 360. Fresh off the Heels of the much beloved Peter Jackson films this one keeps to the world he helped make a live action reality. I only have time to write out the skirmish setting but the single player is equally as good (if not better).

Good: The Art style is pretty bang on amazing. For 2006 you get a spectactular resolution setting. 1400×950. I set it to as high as I could go and the units look pretty awesome. Almost like a toy figure you see in game stores. You are given multiple hero units with their own, if small in scope, abilities. There are 6 factions and almost all are pretty fairly balanced. Your gameplay really focus’s on the micro management of each battle. For example your opponent brings a bunch of archers, long swordsmen and a tank. You’ll need each of your basic defense units minus the tank. First send in your horsemen to take down the archers but you cant leave them in for too long to fight because the long swordsmen will mow them down. You then send in your ground unit to take out the long swordsmen. Don’t leave them in too long because the tank will destroy them.

Bad: This will almost be the exact opposite of what I just wrote with one minor caveat that i’ll get to after the graphics. Although the graphics are pretty awesome for a RTS there are some flaws with the shadow’s causing black blocks to appear randomly. When you move from what is your preset view mode you go into the dark and it just does not even look half as good. This is just like all the rts’s the warcraft franchise has given us. All your structures are basic, farm, fortress,stables,barracks. ANYONE who has played a RTS previously will be able to drop in easily with the one thing I mentioned earlier. The intricate fighting is fun, but if you are battling multiple opponents, managing it makes it not. You really need a few seconds to pull units in and move them out swiftly all the while 5 tanks are also hitting your keep, it’s annoying.

Ugly: My eyes hurt because I got so deeply involved in these battles. ? That’s all I could think of, ha ha.

Fallout 3 DLC woes

I’m not going to do a “told you so” because that’s just mean, and I’m sure some people got it to work (looking square at our boy-wonder Rich). From what I’m understanding is that Achievements were buggy for Xbox360 users as well as a plethora of issues on the PC side. I’m sorry to hear this. Sucks. I hesitated given their past combined with my own extreme dose of back luck. Kotaku reports the DLC is fixed but it seems there’s some ridiculous steps to make get the Achievements. I’m going to see The Tragically Hip tonight in Philadelphia with about 50 other people so there will be very little game time prior to the podcast. We’ll get on that next week though. A whole weekend of gaming should be enough yeah?
